Pros: The only real pro is that it's another 18 hole course to try in the Austin area. Once you try it, you probably won't be back.
Cons: This course is built in an industrial drainage ditch. All tee shots are wide open, so expect to throw a driver a lot, and don't expect much creativity or variety around any of the pins. Most holes are long, flat, and wide open. Most holes were flooded with murky running water, and there are very few trees on most of the holes.
Other Thoughts: Boring.

Pros: I would rate it higher if the land was not a wet drainage area. The overall design is very good. Don't let hole one stop you it gets better. One of the hardest opening holes I've seen. There are a wide variety of holes and lots of well marked out of bounds on the tee signs. While playing, the out of bounds are not visible and many times I threw what looked like a good shot only to find it ob where the creek winds around. Verticle poles are needed to mark the OB. Great tee signs.
Cons: Lots of confusing short walks between holes because you can see lots of other tees and no distinct paths yet. Many of the small trees will be lost with lots of play and this course will open up over the years. This is a hackberry forest. After playing this again I am lowering my rating. There are many holes with no fairway. I threw several drives that missed all the trees but still finished in a spot with no shot to the basket. If you like being frustrated this is the course for you. You may not think so at first but this course favors big arms. On the few holes with open fairways only big arms have an advantage. There are so many dead hackberry trees that soon there may be fairways.
Other Thoughts: The design deserves a rating of 2. If 2 of the hillsides didn't stay so wet it would be a better course. I wish Austin would someday give the disc golfers some decent park land.
